Outdoor Living Skills
A Specialty for those who love to explore and adventure! O.L.S. is about learning the skills to survive in nature and putting them to use on a two night camping adventure exploring the trails along the Maitland River and the woods of the Morris Tract! O.L.S. campers can expect to learn how to set-up a campsite, pitch a tent, make a campfire, cook over a fire, practice no-trace camping, and survive in the wild! The brave band of hikers will be accompanied by experienced 'Outtrip' Camp staff who take with them the resources to ensure that everyone remains safe, healthy, and happy throughout their trip!
Campers participating in the O.L.S. specialty will be required to bring a few addional items with them to camp to help them on their trip: A pair of sturdy shoes (ideally hiking boots), a big backpack, a camping matress (camping matress rentals available for $5 with registration), and a healthy dose of curiosity!
Outdoor Living Skills will be an option for both Specialty Week 1 and Girls Week.

A week of freedom and choice. Teens create their own daily schedule of what they would like to do. Some like to start their day swimming, or walking on the beach, or reading a book, or shooting at archery, or challenging a group to a shelter building competition... wrapping up the day with an intense themed all camp game of awesome - the possibilities are endless!
Each week and every day comes with it's own fun theme! This means that every day and every week of our programming is unique - all campers are encouraged to return for another week to see what else is in store! One day could be Super Spy Academy and another Backwards day! You'll have to find out!
All week themes will be announced at the beginning of June.
Throughout their day, any camper is welcome to visit our Rejuvenation Station as a quiet 'cool down' zone for those that need a change of pace from the stimulating fun outside. This drop-in special place on camp is staffed at all times and serves as a safe place for campers who benefit from quiet reading, doing a puzzle, fidgetting, talking to a Counsellor, or thinking on their own.
Culture of Change & Adaptability
The voices of our campers and camper parents matter in shaping the future of Menesetung. We actively seek feedback and continue to improve and refine our programs each year.
